Programme Note

Mahler’s mighty Symphony No. 5 is the climax of this second Prom from Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. The work’s intense, contrasting moods - the bitter solemnity of the funeral march, the violence of the second movement and the tenderness of the famous Adagietto - make this one of the great orchestral showpieces. The evening opens with the world premiere of a dramatic new symphony from Scottish composer James MacMillan.
